Looks of the Week

My Best & Worst Fashion Picks

This week, beautiful and bright coloured evening gowns caught my fancy. 

Katie Holmes is sublime in a silk fuchsia blouse and bow, which she paired with a matching pleated skirt. She wore the dress to the Annual Drama Desk Awards. The outfit is from her own design line, Holmes & Yang. A black clutch and heels completed her look.

At 'The Tree of Life' premiere, Angelina Jolie looked ravishing in a crimson red asymmetrical silk chiffon gown by Jenny Packham. The colour looks great on her, she should wear it more often.

Fergie surprised me by gracefully pulling off this yellow chiffon gown by BCBG Max Azria. The embellished strap gives the dress a bit of sparkle. I like that she paired it with a bright blue clutch bag. Fergie wore the dress to the 2011 Fifi Awards, where she received the 'New Celebrity Fragrance of the Year' award.

'The Tree of Life' actress Jessica Chastain complemented her red hair by wearing a teal green mermaid gown by Roland Mouret. The waist band is accented with a splash of chartreuse. 

On the other hand, these looks made me cringe...

Heidi Klum attended an art exhibition in New York wearing a mini by Vivienne Westwood. The combination of animal print, shiny chintz fabric and a low exaggerated neckline is too flashy.

Zoe Kravitz attended the 'X-Men:First Class' premiere in a silver velvet Alexander Wang dress. There's no design to this dress, it's ill-fitting, old fashioned and would be better off as a nightdress. 

Kourtney Kardashian wears an Aztec print jumpsuit by Torn. Harem pants are bad enough on their own, converting them into a jumpsuit is even worse. 

Korean actress Han Hyo Joo attended the Baeksang Arts Awards in a whirlwind of ruffled lace tiers. This white Nina Ricci dress is overwhelming her and it's such a pity - if the top were plain, this could have been a pretty look.

Love all those brights, Angelina's dress is the winner for me though! As for the rest, they are definitely cringe worthy!;)
